Stayed in room 1 on the top floor for New Years Eve. Had a great view of the harbour and the fireworks at midnight. The room was lovely with en suite facilities. All very clean and tidy. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, even to the point of being offered a lift to the station the next day if we... More

We stayed in the modern one of the deluxe suites which was huge with fabulous views of harbour. Mini bar, big comfy bed, leather settee, dinner table and good TV. Lovely bathroom, your own private entrance into bnb nice and warm with pleasant fire. Staff very friendly location perfect for all of Scarborough breakfast was also good.

We went to Scarborough on Sunday and this place looked nice so we popped in. Big mistake! We should have left upon discovering they didn't have curry sauce on the menu. Uh oh, snobby cafe alert! The fish and chips came with compulsory mushy peas, which must have been a way to inflate the price? Anyway... these were the worst... More

We went to Scarborough on a bank holiday from Bridlington. What a mistake !! It was raining, everywhere was dismal. It was a poor man's Blackpool. We found the Ivy House, what a delightful cafe. Scones and coffee great and pleasantly served, and it overlooked the harbour - enough said !!!

We booked a twin room, and paid extra to take our dogs. When we got there, a member of staff, a blonde woman, was very ignorant, and spoke to myself and friend like we were something she had stepped in. When we brought the dogs in, she then started to shout at us say "this is not a dog friendly... More

I have just returned from an impromptu stay at the ivy house. The staff were all very helpful, efficient and friendly. They went out of their way to accommodate both me and my cycle. The room on the top floor was immaculate, fantastic views of the bay. The bed was very comfortable. The inclusive breakfast was very tasty and filling.... More

Have eaten here before when visiting Scarborough and have enjoyed the food. Today we were very disappointed. Ordered the fish chips and peas at £9.95 expecting great food. The fish was dry and over cooked. It came with a small portion of mushy peas and an even smaller portion of chips. The chips were delicious and crispy but I counted... More

The staff were very friendly and appologised on arrival about the pricing confusion down to booking.com. The family room wasnt to big but it was enough room for the four of us. The room encluding en-suite were very stylish. The whole hotel was modern and had good decor. The breakfast was a basic menu but all very tasty. Overall the... More
